Lawn Point Provincial Park
About This ParkLocated on the remote coastline between Brooks Peninsula and Quatsino Sound on the west coast of northern Vancouver Island, Lawn Point has an appearance much different from the twisted, rocky terrain that typifies this coastline. Lawn Point itself features a large, flat area covered with tall grass, leading back to a significant old-growth forest.
Lawn Point is a popular destination for kayakers, who stop to camp in the wilderness here before exploring nearby Brooks Peninsula. This undeveloped park has no facilities, but does not lack in scenic value, offering excellent views of the coast and Brooks Peninsula to the south.
Established Date: April 30, 1996
Park Size: 594 hectares (521 hectares upland and 73 hectares foreshore)
